Paxton is slated to throw a standard bullpen workout before the Tuesday game in Cleveland. That stint would follow a 78-pitch rehab outing Sunday for Triple-A Tacoma.
"We'll see what happens (Wednesday)," Lloyd McClendon told the Tacoma News-Tribune. "Then we'll make a decision. Everything up to this point has been great."
Hanigan, who had been expected to come back by Friday, has been out since July 8.
Manager Bruce Bochy said Saturday that Cain's elbow wasn't improving and that he would likely undergo further testing. Out since July 9, Cain will wait and see what Dr. Andrews has to say before determining the next course of action.

Ishikawa hit .206/.263/.382 in 34 at-bats with the Pirates before being released in April. The Giants picked him up a few days later, and he has hit .271/.349/.446 with 11 home runs and 45 RBI in 240 at-bats with Fresno.
Perez has had a few stints with the Giants this season, hitting .156/.208/.267 in 45 at-bats. He has performed much better with Fresno, hitting .333/.397/.496 with three home runs, 17 RBI and seven stolen bases in 117 at-bats.
A back issue that prevented
Gibson hopes he can perform getter than he did in his last five starts. Despite throwing six innings of shutout ball against Kansas City, he has allowed 20 earned runs on 34 hits in 24 1/3 innings during that stretch.
Williams will seek to take the momentum gained from his last start and run with it. He yielded just one run in six innings in a defeat of Oakland.
Teixeira has been out with a lat strain after struggling at the plate. He had three hits in 24 at-bats before going down.
Tepesch has been rocked in recent outings. He has lost his last four decisions with 18 runs and 27 hits allowed in 22 2/3 innings.
